How to smooth out cement/concrete walls
 
The house I'm purchasing has this cement texture like walls that I would like to smooth out. If I could do this myself, what do I need? For a 10 by 10 room, how much would this cost me? Should I hire a skilled person instead?

Got a picture.
Sure your not talking about sheetrock walls that were textured?
Not sure what concrete like walls even means.
Could be pored concrete, concrete blocks, plaster ECT.

Here's a photo. I was aiming for the popcorn ceiling that I will discuss later but you can see the side wall. Unsure what it is

Looks like popcorn texture on the ceiling and knockdown texture on the walls.

Need to really know what's under it, drywall or is this a concrete building.

I'll have to go back and scrape it off and see what's underneath. I'm researching in advance since I would like to get an idea of how much I will be spending with ceilings, walls, paint, flooring, etc.

Thanks for the respond. I will update ASAP.
